In flood-prone Jakarta, will "Giant Sea Wall" plan sink or swim?

14 Sep 2017, TRF

Jakarta, built on a swampy plain, is steadily sinking and as a consequence, is exposed to flooding. The Giant Sea Wall Plan aims to raise and strengthen the existing bay embankment and construct an outer sea wall. While it would keep the water out, it would also hinder the many people whose livelihoods depend on the sea.
